Interesting, apparently a yet another mechanics change from BF3.

That's what led me in the wrong direction.

Actually it is even across the area covered by the radius.

Thanks for the heads up!

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

Meanwhile at DICE-headquarters during BF4's release:

I'm pretty sure there's a massive post-it on every desk "DON'T FUCKING TOUCH ANYTHING THAT IS ACTUALLY DOING WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE DOING"

UCAV:
"Hey guys remember how stupid prenerf mav was?"

"Lets add c4 to it."

The World Champion went to China once.

They called me a Gweilo.

So I kicked a big fucking hole in their wall and let all the Mongolians in.

just thought I'd share.


The thought of Assaults running out of ACE 23 rounds mid firefight, Engineers facing the rear of an unaware MBT with no rockets left, Recons unable to...Whatever the fuck they do. These are the things that keep me up at night ;(

Previously, at DICE HQ:
"Ok guys, the password is "epic dream worlds"; everyone take a letter and do your best to turn it into into something random that we can put into a picture!"


I assume a functional game (BF4) also.

Aww!

So cute!

Actually it is even across the area covered by the radius.

So the spread (in the original example) is more likely to be 0.2 than 0?

No. It is simply random. It is no more likely to be 0.0 than it is to be 0.2 than it is 0.1 than it is 0.199999999... Etc

No, it is more likely to be closer to 0.2 than it is to 0.0.

Break the circle that represents spread and break it into an infinite number of tiny pieces of equal area. Since spread is distributed uniformly over the area of the circle, there's an equal chance of the shot landing in any one of those pieces. More pieces lie near the edge of the circle than near the center, so the farther from the center you go, the more likely your shot is to land there.

To put it another way, take a circle with a radius of 1. That circle has an area of pi. Now draw another circle around that one with a radius of 2. That circle has an area of 4pi. That means the area outside the first circle but inside the second is 3pi. Since spread uniform over area, 3/4 of our shots will land at more than half our spread value, and just 1/4 of them will land within half of spread.

Thanks, that was what I was getting at :)

A strange system indeed!

Hmm that is quite a decent mechanic once you think about it.

It means that the spread system is more random than one would think it is, yet weapons are more accurate than you would think with higher spread.

A lot of thought went into that.
